Fremont Arts Council Gala
"Botanical Bacchanal" 2024

Dahlia Dreams

Step into a surreal garden where criss-crossing lights transform white blooms into a vibrant canvas of color. Dance with butterflies and insects while exploring the mesmerizing interplay of light and shadow.

Dahlia Dreams was created from paper, cardboard, PVC, and other trash and recycled materials.

Three LED lights: red, blue, and green, shone onto the display, casting an array of colorful shadows onto the grass, flowers, and walls. Gala attendees were invited to play with insect shadow puppets and photograph themselves in the lights.

Dahlia Dreams was built in collaboration with Haus Anima with support from Fremont Arts Council
